VISHWAMITRA

"Let Me Be A Brahmarshi"

. But this defeat did not deter Vishwamitra. He did not swerve from his decision to defeat Vashishta. He decided to perform penance once more to increase his powers. He went southwards with his queens. There he settled down in a forest and started his penance to please Brahma, the Creator.

Hundreds of years passed, but Brahma did not appear before him. Vishwamitra did not budge from his decision and penance. After a thousand years, Brahma was pleased with his unshakable determination and appeared before him and said, "0 King Vishwamitra, you have now become a Rajarshi."

How could this satisfy Vishwamitra? He repeated his resolve - I must become a Brahmarshi. I will continue my penance till I reach my goal." He continued his penance.
